Celebrating Canada's Future Entrepreneurial Leaders, the FuEL Awards honour the achievements and aspirations of entrepreneurs under the age of 30, identify role models for progressive business practices and inspire youth to make entrepreneurship their No. 1 career choice.
"The winners of the FuEL Awards are eager young Canadians, brimming with innovative ideas and a passion for creating a better future," says Ian Portsmouth, Editor-in-Chief of PROFIT, which produces the awards in cooperation with Impact Entrepreneurship Group. "They are role models for Canada's youth, and the cornerstone of the country's economic prospects."
